Science Centrepiece, 23 June
A fun part of working at the Academy of Science was acquiring centrepieces from the various after hours events staff attend as part of the job. This one is from dinner with the delegation from the Indonesian Academy of Sciences.
They have a multidisciplinary Academy with five sections; one is social sciences and the other humanities! They’ve also set up a Young Academy for early mid-career researchers. They have so many wonderful plans for outreach and increasing impact. They attended a Symposium I ran, and are committed to enhancing careers for women in science.
